Alexis Diaz is a street artist from Puerto Rico who has been covering walls in San Juan with immaculately detailed artwork.

Although his pieces vary greatly, the majority of his paintings consider subjects that are far from reality -- be it in form or color. A few of his more recent works showcase animal hybrids, with skeletal figures combined with sea creature limbs and rainbow skin.

Others are more Gothic in theme -- with one example being a mural of a crow wrapped around a whimsical vine along with a skull and and a gray sun that appears behind. Another example of this is Alexis Diaz's highly detailed artwork of a butterfly that's shown with an eerie human eye on its back, as well as a strange plant that shows the same on its spiked blossom.
